Then I suggest they take it up with their State, as this is a State issue.

There are women who have heart or kidney disease, diabetes, are taking chemotherapy and any number of reasons why becoming pregnant would be seriously harmful to them or a baby or even kill them. Most women in school do want them for birth control because if they're in school, they aren't ready to start a family. They want to finish school and become established in a job that can support themselves and a baby BEFORE they have one. Married couples still in school don't want children until they're out of school. BC allows a woman or a married couple to PLAN AHEAD and make sure they're ready to support a child before they have one and allows a woman to decide her own future.
While I do agree that birth control pills SHOULD be covered as with any prescription drug, the cost of such is not that detrimental that it is causing a national crisis.
If people are having unprotected sex just because BC is not covered by their insurance, then these people are not very bright. You claim that these people want to finish other important things in their lives prior to having children, but apparently they are willing to take the chance with their health and their future by having a night of unprotected sex.

I had a dream the other night, where I found out I was the only non-paid poster on this forum.
